Program Details

For all levels.

Experience meditation in a style of feeling and freedom. Forget your old ideas of what you should or shouldn’t do while you meditate, and experience a more expansive and joyful way of being. The accumulated knowledge of right and wrong fall away, and what remains is a deep trust in the natural flow of life. When you leave behind your stories of the past, you revel in each moment of sitting, walking, listening, and being.

The retreat includes

  • Early-morning meditation
  • Silent walks in nature
  • Meditation to live music
  • Stimulating group discussion
  • The neuroscience of meditation.

Recommended reading Stephen Mitchell, Tao Te Ching; Lorin Roche, The Radiance Sutras; Osho, Meditation; Paul Reps, Zen Flesh, Zen Bones.
